By 2015, the market will double to nearly 4 billion units [...]
Telcred AB, a developer of NFC-based physial access systems (www.telcred.com), have decided to buy a licence for Percepio's Tracealyzer.
nnovationsbron decided today to invest in Percepio AB in their seed funding program "Insats mot Royalty". This investment enables us to take Tracealyzer to a broader market, and also to begin the productification of our Katana techonlogy.
We are proud to announce that Tracealyzer now supports FreeRTOS. The first supported hardware platform is Atmel AT91SAM7X, an ARM7 MCU. We are working on extending the official hardware support, but if you have a concrete case for us, contact us for a discussion - portingto different hardwares is quite easy as the hardware dependencies are [...]
In early July, Johan Kraft will present a paper at WATERS 2011, the 2nd International Workshop on Analysis Tools and Methodologies for Embedded and Real-time Systems. The title of the paper is "Continuous Constant-Memory Monitoring of Embedded Software Timing".
Students at Mälardalen University are currently working full time constructing an autonomous airplane model, that stabilize and navigate using on-board computers and sensors. The students in the project course are from the Robotics program and from the Master Program in Intelligent Embedded Systems It is based on a large RC model plane, an electrical powered glider with [...]
We have just changed content management system (CMS), from Joomla to "CMS Made Simple", which feels like the right choice. The speed improved quite a lot.
